Kakadu National Park

Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions

COVID-19 safety measures remain in place at Kakadu National Park. The Northern Territory Government has implemented a number of health directions to keep the community safe.

It is important for travellers to keep up to date with the COVID-19 situation in Australia as it is continually evolving. Read more.

NT Health also encourages visitors to the NT to protect themselves against mosquitoes due to the presence of Japanese encephalitis.

This pretty billabong is perfect for trolling and casting for barramundi and saratoga.

You’ll enjoy the displays from the varied birdlife amid the red lilies along the water’s edge, and there’s a large open area for camping, or you can pitch a tent further back under the trees.

Reach it on the south side of the Arnhem Highway, about 25 km down a dirt road.

See it: June to November

Red Lily Billabong (Djunda) isn't open right now, but it's expected to reopen on Thursday 23 June 2022.
